Meet the Author

I am a serious student of history, political, economic, military history, read copiously, often 2-3 books a week, and I have found this knowledge to be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing: I understand what I have read, and I prefer original sources. The curse: mankind is really doomed to repeat the same errors endlessly.Do I take myself seriously? Not really, even though the characters I use in my books all have some basis in reality, I have found that the passions of youth really do mellow out as one gets older.I do take great pride in using weapons and systems that either actually exist, or are theoretically possible. Also the combat situations I describe are as accurate as I can make them.In my book Destruction of Civilization; The Apocalypse Begins the scariest part of writing it was seeing that the preconditions necessary for the story to actually happen were happening.I have now completed the next volume in the Death of Civilization series, Death of Civilization; Reclamation.The Death of Civilization continues with the novel I am currently hard at work on; Death of Civilization; Disaster!Extinction Earth! was a very enjoyable book to write and I have started the next volume in this series also.As a person, I am a grandfather of 3, a father of 2 boys and a girl, have been married to the same wonderful woman for 45 years, and have made, and lost, two fortunes, but have made my third, so I stopped while I was ahead.If you have questions, suggestions, or whatever, my author e-mail is; nathanhalethewriter@aol.com.I do try to check my mail daily but sometimes I forget because I'm having too much fun killing off a character or two.

This sequel is as good as, or perhaps even better than, the first novel in the series. It takes the surviving characters in the first novel and continues their story into a terrible, desperate, future. I read the review by occasional blonde and had to laugh because even a tiny modicum of research would have shown that the theories this authors characters refer to all actually exist including the crustal shift theory by Hapgood whose books forward was indeed written by Albert Einstein. The destruction described is also consistent with the damages to be expected with a kinetic energy weapon that is the equal of a 40 megaton hydrogen bomb. I can understand why the author said he had to take a break from writing this excellent book because picturing the destruction was giving him nightmares. It's a great read and a brutal story. Even the religious overtones are to be expected if something of the magnitude covered in this series has happened. After all every survivor has lost family or friends to the war and its aftermath and faith helps to preserve sanity. Even if the times themselves are insane. I can't wait for the next volume in this series.

This sequel wasn't bad but it drifted off to the absurd with claims of 5 collapses of civilization and gold tablets. It also got into christian mysticism. The recovery build out and human situations are interesting and probably as good as projections as any others. Good science fiction extrapolates while good science fantasy imagines. This book sort of hallucinates. The plot is loosely based on Larry Niven's Lucifer's Hammer. However the mass and kinetic energy of the toothpicks described in the book while adequate for bunker busting are nowhere nearly enough massive for the damage the author likes to describe.
